Pumpkin spice also commonly known as pumpkin pie spice is an aromatic spice mix that is commonly used in making a number of pumpkin recipes. Not only that I enjoy putting it on top of my cereal, cookies or bread. It has such warm notes and a very comforting feel to it. It is an easy blend of fall or winter spices. I find it handy to have pumpkin spice blend at home so that I can use regularly in my recipes.
Here are the pumpkin pancakes that I regularly make. And then there is this crowd favourite pumpkin spice latte that is superbly delicious. Of course, I make a healthier version of it, and it is a hit with everyone at home. So easy to make too.
What is pumpkin pie spice made of?
It is made of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ground ginger and allspice (optional). Check the recipe for the exact proportion.
Here is the simple pumpkin spice mix recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend
- 4 tsp. cinnamon powder
- 2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 tsp. clove powder
- ½ tsp. nutmeg powder
- 1 tsp. allspice optional
- Mix all the powders together and store in an airtight jar.
- Your pumpkin pie spice is ready to use.
2. I don’t add allspice but some people swear by it so go with your palate.
3. The spice mix stays fresh for a few weeks when stored in an airtight container.
This is such an easy recipe. You can get the individual spice powders and then mix them in the given proportion to make your own spice blend to use. Do try.
